Glyconutrients & Brain Function

Study Finds Glyconutrients Significantly Improve Visual Discrimination, Concentration and Working Memory in Healthy Young Adults.

Results of the glyconutrients scientific study showed that a single one-tablespoon serving of glyconutrients significantly improved visual discrimination and working memory.

Drs. Atiya N. Stancil and Leslie H. Hicks, of Howard University in Washington, D.C., published the results of their randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study that investigated the

impact of glyconutrients on the brain function of 62 healthy young adults.

To quote them: "The results of this study are impressive because they show significant improvement in the perceptual capabilities of healthy adults, which indicates that Ambrotose complex can benefit everyone," said Dr. Stancil.

Dr. Robert A. Sinnott, MNS, chief science officer and senior vice president of Mannatech, heads Mannatech's Research Group and developed previous double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials have demonstrated that ingestion of Ambrotose complex can enhance brain waves associated with attention or alertness (2), enhance concentration and improve mental reaction time (3), and improve memory (4).

"Doctors Stancil and Hicks study adds to the body of evidence that shows genuine effects of Ambrotose product in healthy adults," said Dr. Sinnott. "It also confirms the positive cognitive results seen in other studies conducted in the United States and Australia."
